There is a reason that a baby is referred to as the “miracle of life”. Sometimes, it can seem unbelievable that a little human grows inside of a woman. The idea that at just five weeks into pregnancy, your tiny bun already has a brain, spinal cord, and heart can be even more difficult to imagine.
But, it’s true. And even at this very beginning stage of life, health is important.
Did you know that an entire blueprint of a child’s future health can be derived from mom’s health during pregnancy? That’s right. A mother’s health (even before conception) influences the health of her fetus.
What does this mean? It means that the best way to ensure your child is healthy doesn’t start after they are born, or even during pregnancy. It starts with your preconception preparation!
First things first
It’s no secret that young adults are experiencing more hectic, stressful lifestyles as workloads double and financial stress increases. Today’s generation are also victims of convenience, able to order fast food to their doors and no longer needing to walk or use a bicycle as much as in days gone by. Not to mention the increased use of pesticides, and more exposure to radiation from appliances and devices.
So, what is being done to combat these negative effects? Especially during preparation for pregnancy? Well, it starts with understanding that health starts with you. How you treat your body, what you put into it, and how you relieve stress all play vital roles in the outcome of your child’s health. By taking ownership and putting a process in place to optimize your mind and body for child-bearing, you are taking the first step.
